6. Woody Allen/Diane Keaton
Notable Collaborations: "Sleeper," "Annie Hall," "Manhattan," "Manhattan Murder Mystery," "Interiors," "Love and Death"
What makes them special: Allen's various periods as a filmmaker can be largely defined by the lead actress who he is working with at any given time, but only Keaton ever seemed to be more in control of things than Allen. She was incredibly funny in his films, and never once downplayed her own ferocious intelligence. Not many people could have perfectly navigated the Russian-novel-by-way-of-Marx-Brothers tone of "Love and Death" or pulled off the contradictions that make Annie Hall so intensely memorable. And if Allen hadn't had Keaton on his mind, there's no telling if he could have written those roles in the first place.
